Yes, I added one in commit efa5f825.

The fix took a fair bit of refactoring; it's in commits
9db9eec..efa5f825. You can either cherry-pick that range, or just use
"git diff" to generate a patch.
However, for Debian, I don't see much point. Everything up through
unstable does not have the bug (it is all 1.7.10.x or older), and the
version in experimental is already 1.8.3. So as far as I can tell, no
Debian release is currently shipping a buggy version.
